IPMEurope Project Database (IPD)

The IPMEurope Project Database (IPD) was designed as a webbased information service with the overall aim to provide detailed information on IPM project investment by European institutions in developing countries. Target groups are project planners, IPM implementers and policy makers. The data particularly aims to facilitate cooperation between projects with similar concerns and to avoid duplication of efforts.

The following types of projects are included:

  • IPM supporting research, e.g. taxonomical studies, ecotoxicological studies, research on pest biology, models for forecasting, biodiversity studies, biotechnology research;
  • General institutional support to developing countries' plant protection services and to development of pesticide legislation;
  • Research and Development programmes that focus solely on improved effectiveness of chemical control or on safe pesticide handling or pesticides disposal;
  • Ecological, organic agriculture projects with specific mention of appropriate crop protection activities.

The data were drawn from IPMEurope member institutions' projects. The data compilation process is terminated, no more new data entries of current or planned projects occur. Therefore, the database reflects the status quo of IPM projects of the period 1980's and 1990's. With its 894 data entries, the database is by no means exhaustive of all European aid for IPM. However, it comprises a major part of the work of IPMEurope and indicates a very significant commitment to encouraging IPM approaches in developing countries. IPM projects can be searched and selected by countries and by themes. The IPD database is not accessible through the IPMEurope website anymore but an off-line version on CD-Rom can be ordered from the IPMEurope chair.
